Catholic Engaged Encounter is an in-depth, private, personal, marriage preparation experience within the context of Catholic faith and values. It is a weekend retreat away with other engaged couples with plenty of time alone together to dialogue honestly and intensively about your prospective lives together--your strengths and weaknesses, desires, ambitions, goals, your attitudes about money, sex, children, family, your role in the church and society--in a face to face way. The Engaged Encounter Weekend offers couples a unique opportunity to look at their commitment to each other in a deeper way as they prepare for marriage. It gives them the opportunity to focus exclusively on each other for 44 hours in peaceful surroundings, free from the pressure and distractions of the outside world.
The weekend is open to any engaged couple wanting to prepare for a deeper, more meaningful life together in a marriage recognized by the Catholic Church according to its Church law. Learn More.
